Is President Obama lazy?
Washington Times, by Eric Golub

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/7/2013 11:16:12 AM

LOS ANGELES — Conversations must begin honestly. It is perfectly legitimate to analyze leaders with critical lenses. People fight and die for this freedom. Times are serious, and Obama may not be. The question of whether OBama is lazy evokes everything from discomfort to rage. Yet asking and answering questions provokes "national conversations" that President Obama cherishes. Racism exists (thankfully, such views are marginalized) and in the past. Calling blacks "lazy" is one way for racists to spread their message. Denying the connotation denies history. So how can calling Obama lazy not be racist?

Comments:
He´s arrogant, lazy and incompetent. The only thing I would quibble with in the article is that he says 0bama is a "Hawaiian Christian" and not a Kenyan Muslim subversive. There is too much evidence to the contrary.

One has to wonder why the term "lazy" is considered racist.

Is Obama lazy? Well, Duhhhhh! He´s also un-American, has a Communist agenda, doesn´t know much about economics except how to spend us into oblivion, wants to take our guns away, has control over our lives, and the topper is that he is most probably a Muslim.

Is ´Hawaian Christian´ a fancy word for Muslim? Oh, yeah, nothing is right in America anymore.

As the symbolic first black president Obama had to succeed. If he failed or was only mediocre the public might begin to question the media´s decades of promoting the benefits of diversity.

So the media had to pretend Obama was successful even though he wasn´t. They did this by blaming other people or other factors for his lack of accomplishments. Also, he had to be re-elected or it would make America look intolerant. But now that he has been re-elected, and can´t run again, the media might begin to be a little more honest in its Obama coverage.

Lazy in terms of work ethic and intellect? His past performance (or lack thereof) speak louder than words.

He has coasted all of his academic and political career. Period. Most do not challenge his mystique because of his bona fides, his skin color and his charisma.

Sooner or later, his artifice will crumble. It´s fragile enough as it is and it will not be pretty.

Apples and oranges. It isn´t his color that makes him lazy it is his sense of entitlement with the power provided to him. Much of it unchallenged. He uses "executive order" for others to do the job he was elected to do.

Yes, he is lazy. He is also self-aggrandizing and petty. And he hates America and Americans. He doesn´t like black people, white people or any other race of people. He´s a misanthrope. He´s also greedy. And not too bright. He´s conceited and foolish.

Shall I go on? He´s one of the worst human beings ever to hold high office in the history of the world. And, no, I´m not exaggerating.

Hard to distinguish between lazy and stupid.

Like, ask if some guy is strong or weak. What if he can´t manage to pick up a candy wrapper. You *think* he has the strength, but he can´t get it done. So, well, there it is.

We merely human working taxpayers and financially self sufficient know so little about this it (entity ) that a judgement of that sort is not possible.
If it is human then it´s knowledge of it´s glorious superiority leaves it bored with it´s mentors assignment to destroy every last vestage of America, The Constitution and Bill of Rights, The Family, Christanity , Judaism, and Capitalism.
The first debate highlighted this ho humm boredom it often displays. It seems to display to it´s subjects, boredom, contempt, and disdain.

Many people some of us might call lazy are actually quite industrious:

1. The EBT crowd have to apply and go through all the work to get "free" money.

2. Criminals have to go to a lot of work and take risks to gain access to other people´s stuff.

3. Vote cheaters have to go to various polling places - usually all on one day.

4. zero had to run all over the country speechifying and lying like a rug to maintain his 1 billion $ a year little personal kingdom including the multi-million dollar vacations.

Oh the humanity!!!

I don´t know if he is lazy about things like doing housework, picking up after himself, etc. But indications are Obama is intellectually lazy, which I think is quite common among super-brains as well as dullards. Leftism is intellectually lazy. Leftists never challenge their own assumptions. Leftists rely on cliches, stereotypes and caricatures. The footage of Obama as a law instructor at the blackboard is shockingly sophomoric. His laziness means he hasn´t learned anything, he´s carrying on with the same old Community Rabble Rouser shtick.

Pretty successful for a lazy guy. Lazy is the opposition who can´t pin the tail on this donkey. He does everything but drive the truck across the border with the guns in it and his ´enemies´ can´t put him anywhere near it. In fact they can´t hold anyone responsible for a direct order from DC to AZ to sell deadly weapons to obvious drug cartel criminals. How does a ´lazy´ man pull that off? Scooter Libby went to jail over NOTHING and these guys explain on camera how they are not going to enforce voter intimidation laws because you are white and they are black. Yet nothing happens. Lazy? No.

If you´re a puppet -- a useful idiot tool -- for a Prgressice organization bent on bringing down America´s economy, being lazy is a must.

BJ Clinton had too much get up & go to be used like this poser. And he was far more intelligent. These handlers do all the dirty work for him, while he plays golf or swims in the Hawaiian surf.

Yes, he is lazy. It´s a job requirement for this group. Soros probably hand-picked him for that alone.

"Mainstream critics do not see Obama as evil, but then being evil would require effort."

that is a knock out funny line.

Was it Doug Brinkley or Michael Beschloss (both of whom should know better) that said that Obama has the highest IQ of any president in history. How on earth would he know that and on what is it based? I am not saying Obama is dumb but I haven´t ever heard him say anything I regarded as particularly intelligent. Does anyone seriously believed Obama has a higher IQ than say, Thomas Jefferson?

Glenn Beck has previously expressed his desire to be less political and more like Walt Disney, and in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Beck reveals he’s working on three movies to make the kind of entertainment he would want to see more of in theaters. Beck’s company Mercury Radio Arts is working on building up a film division, and he says right now he’s working on three movies: “one set in ancient history, one in modern history and a third he considers ‘faith-based.’” For anyone that might wonder why the ex-Fox News commentator would get into the Hollywood game,

David Brat, the long-shot challenger to Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA) in Virginia´s 7th Congressional District, is demanding an investigation into the new executive director of the Virginia Republican party, Shaun Kenney, after it was revealed Kenney´s consulting firm is now on Cantor´s payroll. "If Eric Cantor´s campaign or any of his affiliates has hired Shaun Kenney’s consulting firm, any pretense of fairness in the upcoming Seventh District Congressional Race is diminished," Brat wrote in a letter to Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia (RPVA). On Monday, a posting by a contributor at the blog Kenney founded, Bearing

The White House has announced that John Podesta, President Obama’s current Counselor, will lead his delegation to the Holy See for the Mass of canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II on April 27, 2014. Podesta will head the delegation which will also include Rep. Xavier Becerra, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, and Katie Beirne Fallon, Assistant to the President and Director of Legislative Affairs. Podesta is the founder and chairman of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank funded by wealthy liberal supporters such as George Soros, Peter B. Lewis, Steve Bing, and

NYPD´s Surveillance Program:
It´s Not About Islam, It´s
About Protecting New York

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

According to new IRS emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner contacted the Department of Justice in May 2013 about whether tax exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for "lying" about political activity. "I got a call today from Richard Pilger Director Elections Crimes Branch at DOJ ... He wanted to know who at IRS the DOJ folk s [sic] could talk to about Sen.

Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
